Ibiza is a magical island filled with beautiful beaches, scenic views, amazing food and gorgeous people.  Known for their jet-set party scene, it also has many hidden gems that any adventure seeker would love, and it’s even family friendly!  One of my favorite beaches was Salinas, where you can enjoy beach side drinks and food while house music pumps in the background.  Past the semi-nude beaches were these massive rock enclaves where you could have your own private beach.  They were the perfect setting for a little pop up photo shoot!

Nestled in the bustling City Market is Jolin a local boutique that’s been located there for over 4 years.  Stocking local favorites such as Escapada Living and Shanlou accessories, Jolin brings resort chic to both locals and tourists.  The buyer, Michelle Hou, takes frequent trips to New York to hand select product that her Charleston customers enjoy all year round. The eclectic range of merchandise spans from women’s clothing and accessories to men’s accessories and great gift ideas.  Shopping in the City Market is no longer for just tourists, but locals can also enjoy the hidden gems that are around every corner.

I recently partnered up with The Scout Guide Charleston to take a spin in some fun outfits from The Trunk Show.  This “Couture Consignment” boutique has the biggest collection of gently worn designer labels in Charleston and their vintage rack always surprises me.  You have to give yourself at least an hour to dig through all of the treasures and probably another hour just to try on everything to pair with the right accessories.  I love the ladies in the shop, they are a sassy and lively bunch. They know my style well and always show me the pieces that make me swoon.

The Scout Guide Charleston is a beautifully printed publication that features locally owned businesses in a cohesively curated way.  With over 60 city guides spanning from Silicon Valley to Naples it’s the go to guide for both locals and visitors. Check out The Scout Guide Charleston blog today to view our fun collab!
